The Continental was an outgrowth of the Lincoln Zephyr series. It began life as personal transportation for Edsel Ford, but was so well received among his friends, that it found its way into production.

Bob Gregorie completed the design in November 1938. It features long low styling courtesy of a four inch section removed from the doors and body. The car appears lower, but maintains standard ground clearance to ensure drivability. The car was completed the following March, and shipped to the Ford compound in Florida where it was declared an immediate and sensational success.

In October of 1939, the car was introduced as a Lincoln Continental Zephyr. A coupe model debuted in May of 1940 and the Zephyr named was dropped in September.
